“My passion is fashion. I don’t know where I would be without it.”
Leonard is a Los Angeles native. Growing up, he was both an actor and an athlete, dividing his time between musicals and basketball. He is now pursuing his lifelong dream of working in fashion as a stylist based in Venice, California.
How would you describe your own personal style?
“My personal style is my prized possession. I’d say I dress like a cool grandma.”
Can you describe a typical day in your life?
“No day is ever the same. Some days I am loaded with work, running around LA preparing a job, sifting through emails, or at a fitting. Other days, I ignore my laptop, play tennis, conjure up new ideas. However, I always make sure I have my lemon water in the morning.”
What inspires you the most?
“I am most inspired by music. There is always a song playing in my head, if not out loud.”
What are your other passions/hobbies/side gigs?
“When I am not working, I write. I’m currently developing a screenplay; it’s a modern tragedy. I practice yoga when I can, and try to watch as many films as possible. I’m not a fan of clichés, but my passion is fashion. I don’t know where I would be without it.”
